Rusty Scruby

In describing his current work, the artist states that he uses "various techniques to reconstruct the photographic material. Using ideas I've gathered over the years studying music composition, engineering and knitting, I create what I call 'visual frequencies'. I work with ideas of tension and relaxation by controlling the amount of repetition in the image as it travels across the undulating surface."

Recently Rusty Scruby's exhibitions have included Photography Unbound at the Robert V. Fullerton Museum, San Bernardino, CA; Stretching the Truth at the John Michael Kohler Art Center, Sheboygan, WI; and Playing in the Sand at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary, Dallas, TX. Quin Mathews' 52 minute documentary: Rusty Scruby: Beyond the Plane premiered at the Dallas Museum of Art, Horchow Auditorium. In April 2010, Playing in the Sand traveled to the Art Museum of Southeast Texas for a solo exhibition running through July 11, 2010.
